That's too bad......But I guess that is their choice.  If I were in
that position where I didn't want to work the participants of the
ARRL CW contest (can't imagine that happening when the certificate
for that country is at stake!) I'd operate SSB, RTTY or AM.
Otherwise there will most likely be an exchange of verbage on the
CW frequencies in question!

Some of  the TPF's and GOB's on 3852 are contesters, and they also
request a clear freq.  Not quite as politely, but they do request
one!  Sometimes they get one and sometimes they don't.

Doesn't make sense to me, but not a lot does, some days!

Good luck in the contest.
